There is a season for everything
With a purpose every time,
With reason and with meaning;
Appointed moments in our lives.
The sacred time of birth
As we welcome our first breath,
As we journey to the end
Where there is the time of death.
There’s a moment we do plant
As we sow what we shall reap,
And there’s a time for the harvest
So there’s plenty we can eat.
Emotional upheavals do occur
When with our words we kill,
But through repentance and forgiveness
There is a time to heal.
Our tears will cascade
And there is a time to mourn,
But times of refreshing they will come
When laughter will be born.
There’s a time for solitude
As we reflect upon our life,
And we refrain from all the noise;
The negativity or strife.
There’s a time for prosperity
As we gain and multiply,
But the moment where we lose
Inevitably will arise.
There are moments we accumulate
From the fruit of all our labor,
But equally a time to dispose
When things will lose their flavour.
There are moments when our silence
Is the wisest thing to do,
But there’s the imperative of speaking out
To project what’s good and true.
There’s that wretched time of war
Where greed and power meet,
But we rejoice when freedom and liberty
Will give us lots of peace.
There are moments in our journey
In this life that is bestowed,
But the most crucial is to fear God
Where reverence it is shown.

“To everything there is a season. A time for every purpose under heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to pluck what is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones and a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, and a time to lose; A time to keep, and a time to throw away; A time to tear, and a time to sew; A time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; A time of war, and a time of peace.” Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgement, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
